For the cake you can use any recipe you have and just replace the sugar with splenda and add an extra 1/2 tsp baking soda for every cup splenda.

This is the recipe I used and it was awesome!

(Diabetic) Chocolate Cake

3 oz. dark chocolate (sugar free for diabetic)

1 ½ C hot brewed coffee
3 C sugar (Splenda for diabetic)
2 ½ C all-purpose flour
1 ½ C cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking soda (add 1 tsp. for diabetic)
¾ tsp baking powder
1 ¼ tsp salt
3 eggs
¾ C vegetable oil
1 ½ C buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 300° Grease and flour pans. Line with parchment paper.

Finely chop chocolate and in a bowl combine with hot coffee. Let mixture stand, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.

Into a large bowl sift together sugar(Splenda), flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In another large bowl with an electric mixer beat eggs until thickened slightly and lemon colored ( about 3 minutes with a standing mixer or 5 minutes with a hand held mixer). Slowly add oil, buttermilk, vanilla, and melted chocolate mixture to eggs, beating until combined well. Add sugar mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined well. Divide batter between pans and bake in middle of oven until a tester inserted in center comes out clean, 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Cool layers completely in pans on racks. Run a thin knife around edges of pans and invert layers onto racks. Carefully remove parchment paper and cool layers completely.

For the icing you can either use whipped cream made with splenda insteda of sugar or you can use the diabetic icing on this site. The diabetic icing from this site is so good. I adapted it to make it chocolate by using a SF chocolate pudding instead of vanilla and adding 1/4 C unsweetened cocoa.

I also have a recipe for a SF mousse. You take 1 C milk, 1 pint whipping cream and a pudding mix and mix them until stiff. It is really yummy. You can use whatever flavor pudding you want for variation.

2 ½ C all-purpose flour

Diabetic Chocolate Cream Cheese icing

1 pint whipping cream
1 box SF pudding
16 oz. cream cheese
3 T Splenda
¼ C cocoa (optional)

Whip whipping cream in cold bowl until stiff. Add softened cream cheese, pudding mix, cocoa powder and Splenda. Mix on medium speed until well blended.

Also, you can adapt most recipes by adding extra baking soda and subbing Splenda for the sugar. I have found that it is better to add the Splenda in with the dry ingredients rather than creaming with the butter. Just cream the butter by itself and add the Splenda into the dry ingredients. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

post #53 of 59

I just saw this post, haven't been on in a while.  Just to give you a heads up, just because a cake is made with splenda and is a "diabetic" recipe doesn't mean it's okay for a diabetic. My daughter was diagnosed 6 months ago, it's the carbs you have to watch. I have done a lot of research and from what I have found is most "diabetic" recipes have more carbs than the regular recipe. When we have birthday parties she is allowed (at her snack time) 1 carb. Which is a 30 gram piece of cake (with icing) or she can have 1/2 cup of ice cream. Her choice.  I use the same cake and icing recipes I have for years.

I just wanted to let you know because until her diagnoses I thought sugar-free meant it was fine for a diabetic, but that is not the case. There are LOTS of misleading information about diabetics! Along with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

I would love to have your recipe, I have both a daughter and a good friend, who are diabetic, and special occasions would be so much nicer if they could eat the cake also.  I would really appreciate it. .

 

Thanks so much.

In all honesty I use Pillsbury cake mix and indydebi's buttercream icing.

I know this is an old thread, by to add to what fabfour posted, I always provide a breakdown of my sugar free cakes to clients.
I do it by weight, and it shows how many grams of carbs, sugar and fiber they get per serving.
I've used 'diabetic friendly' recipes before, then worked out those categories only to be shocked at how much sugar there actually is.

It really is crazy how much sugar and carbs are in things you would never have guessed. Believe me, our world was turned upside down when we got the diagnoses. I know there are worse things out there but it is still quite life-changing.  Not only do we have to manage and take care of the daily things but then having to explain to people why she can't have something when it's "sugar-free". You wouldn't believe the people who get upset and act like I'm overreacting.
